DP at Glasgow 17/10/98
Deep Purple keep getting better and better! Proven to me tonight (well acctually yesterday now!).
Firstly here's my ATTEMPT at the set list:
I'm not to sure on the middle but all these songs happened (Lazy may just have been part of a solo).
The sound quality was excellent, it was quiter than the Barrowland Purpendicular concert, but the quality was first class.
There were some humerous moments:
A roadie tuning Steve's guitar and pretending to shoot another roadie!
Ian G's insight into why "Fingers to the bone" isn't called "Elbows to the bone"!
Steve fixing a broken Ian G and tuning him to his guitar (using an imaginary nob on his chest! Could be confusing).
Steve was on brilliant form with his magical solos, I especially like'd a bit in "Strange kind of woman" which was really soft and his smooth celtic sounding solo. He can really do amazing things with a guitar!
Jon had a good solo with a slightly classical piano feel interspersed with shots on his organ.
Sadly for me I just missed Ian Paice's drum stick (it came up into the balcony, I touched , it slipped, I cried :-( ).
It was a fairly packed possibly full concert in a big hall. This proves DP still rock I saw many younger than myself too (16) which is good to see!
All I can say is keep on Rockin'.
I would have liked to see "Hush", "Anya" or "Sometimes I feel like screaming", but hey - GREAT CONCERT!
If anyone feels the need to say hello or something email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
